It’s no secret that runner’s feet are oftentimes far from pretty. If we’re lucky enough to have
retained all ten toenails, chances are good that one or two of them are a wee
bit funky. And many of us sport calluses that are frighteningly thick. I seem
to have more than my fair share of rough-and-tough skin, and I’m always looking
for ways to smooth and soften my poor tootsies.
It was during a recent visit to a spa for a do-what-you-can-to-disguise-my-scary-feet pedicure
that I was introduced to what may be the best callus file ever known to womankind.
The Nikell NK-204 file takes to my toughest skin like a knife to butter – it’s
honestly that good. The coarse file is a special configuration of metal that
never wears down and is easy to clean. As you can imagine, I left the spa the
proud owner of my very own Nikell NK-204 file. Knowing that some of you might
feel compelled to test the file’s magic yourselves, I also tracked it down
online (as part of a two-piece set) here and here.
Check it out – and
be prepared for the softest feet you’ve felt in a long time!
